• pacman -Syu all antergos packages marginal trust - error II


    I start a new topic, because the one that’s solved doesn’t work for me. This one:
    “pacman -Syu all antergos packages marginal trust - error”

    No luck here, after the same problem i did:

    sudo rm -R /etc/pacman.d/gnupg
    sudo pacman-key --init
    sudo pacman-key --populate archlinux antergos
    
    

    But still not possible to update.
    When i try (already tried two times) this:

    sudo pacman-key -l antergos
    

    i get still this:

    pub   rsa2048 2014-05-09 [SC] [expired: 2017-05-23]

    Any help?

  • looks like you have long time do not make a full update?

  • @joekamprad Right, a mega work load and Antergos root problems has put me for some months back on MacOS and i haven’t done any updates since then.

    rm -R /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/ && pacman-key --init && pacman-key --populate archlinux antergos
    

    gives me

    ==> ERROR: pacman-key needs to be run as root for this operation. 
    

    And here starts the problem that i already has posted on this forum months ago, but never got or find a fix.

    I am now logged-in as administrator (the first user during install) so that’s also the same password as root, normally.

    But since my last update months ago the same password doesn’t work anymore for the root, but i can still install applications, change system settings, create new users, …, with my administrator account and password.

    Strange, it seams that the root has another password then the administrator (the first user during install)?
    When i change the administrator password, then the root password follows, or not?

    How to fix that first?

  • @joekamprad Muchas gracias, funcionó para mi.

  • @bartatantergos to clearify:
    On installation you set your normal-User Name and password, this password also is setup automatic as the password for root. But only inside install process.
    If you change password you only change for per user. So root password is not touched if you change password fir normal-user.
    If you can not remember password for root, it is possible to reset.

    But you can still use sudo with normal-user to get admin rights.

  • @joekamprad Ok, now i understand why. I will have to reset. Yes, sudo still works with my admin pass but:

    rm -R /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/ && pacman-key --init && pacman-key --populate archlinux antergos
    

    doesn’t work with sudo and asks for root?

  • Each command will need sudo between each && is one command, ;-)

  • @joekamprad :-) Yes, i know. But the problem is that the rm -R … command doesn’t work with sudo and asks for root.
    Ok, i will first reset the root and then come back here.

  • @joekamprad Is it possible to reset the root pass with the admin and sudo?
    Maybe better to do it directly this way: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Reset_root_password

  • @bartatantergos i think a:

    sudo su
    passwd
    

    is short dirty and dangerous ;)

  • @joekamprad Too dirty, i get a:

    user passwd does not exist
    

    Other iterations i tried also with no luck?

  • @bartatantergos said in pacman -Syu all antergos packages marginal trust - error II:

    Is it possible to reset the root pass with the admin and sudo?

    No, it is not possible.

    The correct way to change the root password is:

    1. Boot into (root) bash shell by appending

      init=/bin/bash
      

      at the end of the kernel’s boot line

    2. Remount the root file system to make it writeable

      mount -n -o remount,rw /
      
    3. Use the passwd command to create a new root password

      passwd
      
    4. Reboot

      reboot
      
    5. Done

  • Ok, root reset i do later. Thanks!
    Now it works with sudo?! Why i don’t know.

    But the last command:

    sudo pacman -Syu
    

    Stays at

    downloading required keys...
    

    How long can that take, i am already waiting 10 minutes?

    Now i get an error:

    Error: key "E62..." could not be looked up remotely 
    

    Nothing happens after that?

    p.s.: this forum application is terrible on a tablet. :-/

    you can get used to it, i manage to use it on smartphone too …

    $ sudo rm -R /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/

  • @joekamprad Thanks, will try the commands from your previous reply tomorrow morning!
    Will let you know.

  • @joekamprad
    Thanks for all the help!
    This is a mess, doesn’t work, and i am tired of it. But learned a lot. I will do, when i am back home, one time more a clean Antergos install and also a Debian one, to find out which works better for me.

    Hope it all goes well for you!

    Keep trying, never give up. In the end, you will find that it was all worth it

    i understand. Antergos is not for everyone, which is why it’s such a good thing there are so many distros to choose from!

    Speaking of such, if you are looking for an easier (not arch based) rolling distro, I just found out that Faren OS is about to become rolling release! And it’s based on Linux Mint, a very stable distro. It is somewhat like Zorin in that it is made for Linux beginners, so you shouldn’t have too many problems there:slight_smile:. However, I have not actually tried it out since Antergos is working for me right now.

    Just a suggestion!

  • @Keegan No, i don’t want an easier one, i want a more easier one for a dual boot MacOS/Linux on a MBp. I am sure that if i put Antergos single boot on a pc it will work forever. ;) I am not new to computers. Also i want to keep things pure as possible, so i don’t want to use other distros then Antergos/Arch and Debian.

    But ok, the dual boot Antergos is still working properly, only the update isn’t working properly anymore. So, i will put ( dd clone ) an older backup over it and try to update properly from that older backup to get back on track.

    Also after months with a lot of work it’s nice to be in vacation and have time to relax and fix/clean the shit. ;-)
